Please contact your Pediatric Dentist if the following Emergencies Occur:
(1) Knocked out a permanent tooth.
Rinse the tooth using only water and try to re-implant and hold it in place immediately. If re-implanting the tooth is not possible, Keeping the tooth inside a glass of milk, saliva, or water can also help save the tooth. Contact our emergency dental care immediately so we can see your child promptly.
(2) Severe dental pain with systemic symptoms, including high fever, facial swelling, and difficulty opening the mouth fully.
Please get in touch with our emergency dental clinic immediately, and we will respond in a timely fashion. To relieve some of the pain at home, try the following:
- Clean the tooth and rinse with warm water
- Over-the-counter pain medication (dose according to child’s age and weight)
- A cold compress or ice to the face
(3) Knocked out a baby tooth.
If your child’s baby tooth has been knocked out, then it’s time for the tooth fairy! We do not re-implant baby teeth to prevent damage to the permanent tooth underneath. Contacting our pediatric dentist to evaluate and ensure the surrounding teeth and bones are healthy and avoid injury is still important.
